Myocardiopathy: Clinical Picture and Prognosis

  • Hymie S. Joffe
Conference paper


Myocardiopathy (or cardiomyopathy) may be “idiopathic,” such as dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), or “specific” if of known etiology; e.g., diphtheritic. The term “primary” indicates that the heart is the major organ involved (e.g., hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) as opposed to “secondary,” where the heart is affected as part of a diffuse disease (e.g., glycogen storage disease).
